The Holland Hurricanes men’s baseball team open their season at home this weekend with a double header on Saturday when they square off with the St. Mary’s Huskies at Memorial Field. On Sunday their season continues when they head to Wolfville, N.S. to take on the Acadia Axemen; game times are 1 and 3:30pm on both days.
Curtis McGregor, a returning corner infielder for the Hurricanes, has his sights set high for the season.
“Starting off the season with a couple wins is our goal. If we keep a winning mentality throughout the season we will step on the plane to nationals in October and be focused on having a strong championship.”
Former player and current assistant coach for the ‘Canes, Logan Gallant, had nothing but praise for his team when asked how he feels about the first game of the season.
“We have a good bunch of athletes with lots of new blood. The work ethic has been strong and I think we are going to go out, play hard and win a lot of ball games this season.”
On Saturday, Ryan Abraham will take the mound in the first game followed by Tyler Johnston. On Sunday the ‘Canes will look to Chandler Laporte and Charles MacLellan to keep the Axemen bats at bay.
The Hurricanes have won the last four Atlantic conference regular season titles, finishing last season with a 14-2 record.
They are gearing up for their hunt for a National Championship this October 25-28 in Toronto, ON, hosted by the Humber College Hawks.
